Spring Peeper (Pseudacris crucifer)

The Eastern Gray Tree Frog and the Spring Peeper are the only tree frogs in the state. The Gray Tree frog is much larger than the Spring Peeper and the Spring Peeper has a x shaped mark on its back.

American Bullfrog (Rana catesbiana)

The Bullfrog and Green Frog can be distinguished from each other from the dorsal ridge. The Green frog has a line that goes almost all the way down its back while the Bullfrog’s line wraps around the ear.


The Mink Frog (Rana septentrionalis) has the dark black on its back that makes it easy to tell apart from the other frogs in this state.

Pickeral Frog (Rana palustris)

The Pickeral Frog and Northern Leopard Frog look very similar to each other because of the spots but the Pickeral frog’s spots are more rectangular than the Northern Leopard Frog.
